The Niagara Region offers many activities for all age groups. Tourists can roller blade along the Niagara River all the way to Niagara Falls. The Niagara Parkway has one of the nicest bicycle paths. This path starts in Niagara on the Lake and takes you past the Falls along the Niagara River to Fort Erie - yes, to the US border. There are numerous bicycle trails. Ask us for bicycle route maps to the wineries, or just for the Niagara Region. Horse-back riding, jetboating, helicopter rides and walking trails are also available. During season, pick your own apples, peaches, strawberries, pears and cherries from the Niagara Region farms.
